Event description
Rumble Theatre presents PATHETIC FALLACY Created by The Chop November 25 - 29, 2020

About this Event

Rumble Theatre is pleased to present the Vancouver premiere production of The Chop Theatre’s Pathetic Fallacy. The shows run from November 25 to 29, 2020 and each performance will be livestreamed online at 7:30pm PT.

Pathetic Fallacy examines our changing relationship to weather. It circles around climate change and lands on one person. Reflection outweighs didacticism, with wit and curiosity. Urgently drawing together landscape painting, small talk, meteorological science and pathetic fallacy—the attribution of human feelings and responses to inanimate things like the weather—this piece questions the value of emotion in the face of a coming storm.

Every night features a new performer who receives all their staging instructions live, standing in front of a temperamental broadcast media green screen. It’s an original collision of DIY cinematography, action film, choreography, a gallery talk, and weather forecasting —all with the immediacy of live performance. For more info...
